Steps Cutting Board Version 2 (Two Step)

1472 days ago by SPalm | 67 comments »

This is a second generation Steps cutting board made out of walnut, maple, and cherry. The first Steps board I made used a basic square with edge of maple and cherry to make it a block and a notch to do the stepping. I wanted to try to make a stepping board using the hex Tumbling Block design, and this is what I came up with. In order to make the hex do the stepping, I needed to notch all three sides, as can be seen in the Sketchup drawing. The cool thing here is that it steps in two di...

Ribbons in Cutting Boards

32 days ago by prospector45 | 8 comments »

Several years ago I saw this ribbon design at segmenting.biz/inlayexample. I started by selecting the body of the design. In this case, padauk, yellow heart, aand hickory for three boards. Then I laminated the “ribbons” Then I cut 2” holes in the boards that make up the body of the design. The problem for a flat boarder(cutting board) was how to create the plugs without a center hole. The first idea was wood turning but this would require a massive square of exotic wood...

My Long Wait for a Workshop #5: Home Made Air Filter

1220 days ago by JWags | 12 comments »

Hello again, Just finished my homemade shop air filter. I had to change my original plans, which were to hang it from the ceiling. That’s because I also wanted a washable filter, to keep down on the ongoing costs. So here was the final criteria: I needed a blower that would draw and push at least 800 CFm, a primary filter that would catch up to 5 microns, and a secondary filter that would catch 1 micron particles, and not be cost prohibitive. Plus – it had to be quiet. S...

Heart vase

577 days ago by hairy | 2 comments »

I’ll fast forward through the stock preparation. I have 2 blanks, identical in size. They were cut from a board. I marked how they came off the board to get the best grain match. I’ve seen this method used on rectangular boxes. I marked them to maintain that match. I marked the center on a piece of printer paper. I made several copies. I put the inside and outside dimensions on the paper. I drew half of a heart, then I used carbon to make a mirror image . If you’re be...

622 days ago by Sam Shakouri | 16 comments »

I would call this project ” From Flat Blank ( 25mm thick ) To 100 mm Deep Bowl”. It maybe ready early next year as I am very busy at the moment.

Here, I am going to show you the first steps befor geting it ready for the lathe to finish it.For that, I made a plywood tool r...

Easy Wood Tool Replaceable Cutter Heads

632 days ago by McLeanVA | 7 comments »

I am a huge fan of the Easy Wood Tool series and have really enjoyed using my full size Ci1 Rougher and Ci0 Finisher on spindle and faceplate projects. I guess the only real gripe is that the EWT cutter heads (while you never need to sharpen them) cost just under $20 each. So, I did some measuring with the calipers and some good old Google legwork and found that Byrd Tool makes a cutter head that is near identical to the EWT version at a fraction of the cost ($2.80 each). I’m sure...
